We are new in town and ordered delivery tonight. Took over an hour to get our food, when we were told 40 minutes. The food itself was horrible. My noodle dish had no noodles(???) and just tasted like chicken soup, the fried rice is just greasy uncle bens tasting rice with literally nothing it in except small pork chunks (no peas, onions, egg, etc like most places), the egg rolls have a uniquely unusual taste that is just “off”, and the boneless ribs are fatty and lack sauce. My husband got a few dishes too that he hated. I’m just sorry we ordered so much food and wasted so much money on stuff we threw in the trash. I ate what I could and now my stomach is terribly upset, too.

Absolutely do not eat here. Worst Chinese food ever and it took us forever to get our food. Really ruined our evening since now we aren’t feeling well either.

Open most days and long hours. Family owned. Not quite that clean (tables). This seems to be a call ahead, take out place. VERY few, highly uncomfortable bench seats and tables. Staff is courteous, not many speak English. Food is good, depending on what you get. IMO, too pricey for what you get. Taste is average to good.

I got stranded and needed to find a place to deliver food. I was very happy with my order. The picture is a pupu platter for one! The portions were very generous and the food delicious. I had homemade duck sauce to go with it and it was heavenly.
